WYSO

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) was in Springfield on Friday to kick-off a program designed to help boys and young men of color get ready for college and careers. 

The Ohio program is affiliated with a national program called “My Brother’s Keeper.” It was started by the Obama administration as a way to address educational opportunity gaps for young people in underserved communities around the country.

Sen. Brown has been a champion of the program - launching chapters in Dayton, Toledo, Mansfield, Lorain County and elsewhere in the state.
